Councillor Lisa Stone has been the Assistant Mayor with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing since January 2015. Prior to this she was Assistant Mayor with responsibility for Communication and Community Engagement. Lisa was first elected to Salford City Council in 2011, representing the Eccles Ward and was very proud to be re-elected in May 2015.

Although we are seeing an improvement in a number of different areas, we do still have huge health inequalities in areas of our City. My role as Assistant Mayor for Health and Wellbeing is to support the work of the Council and our partners to address this, to make sure we do all we can to have a whole system approach to health and wellbeing and use evidence based commissioning as well as innovative partnership approach to make sure that we get the most out of the Salford Pound and Greater Manchester Health Devolution.
